Weight Loss After Delivering Baby
So, during delivery, you should lose the weight of the baby, the placenta, the amniotic fluid, and perhaps some blood and water. much of the rest of your weight is still there, and will be for some time after delivery.. You should plan to return to your pre-pregnancy weight by 6 to 12 months after delivery. most women lose half of their baby weight by 6 weeks after childbirth (postpartum).. I was 104 when i became pregnant and 146 when i had my baby. the day after i weighed 115 (i am short, 5'1) but it took me a year to lose that 10 pounds..
True. take one seven- to eight-pound baby, plus about two pounds of blood and amniotic fluid, and you're pretty much assured a 10-pound weight loss in the hospital after you deliver.. Besides helping you with your weight loss after delivery, a brisk walk with the baby in a nearby park or playground is a great way to meet other moms who may be on the same weight loss mission you are.. Although it can difficult to lose weight after having a baby, it's important that you do so, carefully and slowly. even a small weight gain of 1-2 bmi units between pregnancies can increase the risk of complications, such as high blood pressure and gestational diabetes, in your next pregnancy..
